Plot hole: Susan theorises that the insects have evolved to resemble people because of predatory pressure.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film, Susan puts down her insect killing box in a patch of light in the tunnel and another patch of light is visible a few meters behind her. Just before and, more, at the end of the scene the wide shots show that there is just one light patch and that the rest of the tunnel is dark. (00:05:40)
